¿Qué objetivos tiene esta formación?

Students who specialise in Japan and the Japanese language at SOAS will gain competency in language skills and intercultural awareness and understanding. You will have developed a familiarity with the region through a combination of the study of language, literature, history, cinema, politics, economics or law. Graduates leave SOAS not only with linguistic and cultural expertise, but also with a portfolio of widely transferable skills which employers seek in many professional and management careers, both in business and in the public sector. These include written and oral communication skills, attention to detail, analytical and problem solving skills and the ability to research, amass and order information from a variety of sources. Choosing to study a joint degree programme will increase the breadth of your knowledge, and will develop additional skills with which to further your studies of the Japan, or to make comparative study with other areas. Japanese may be combined with a huge range of other disciplines.

Requisitos: No preliminary knowledge of the language is required but a foreign language at A level or equivalent is preferred.

Programa académico

Students must take a total of four units each year. Year 1 The programme accommodates absolute beginners as well as those with some knowledge of Japanese. Absolute beginners are placed in J1 Elementary Japanese (2 units), and students who know some Japanese may be allocated, after a placement test, to J 1 Accelerated Elementary Japanese (1.5 units). Accelerated Elementary Japanese (1.5 units) students will also take an additional half unit from any of the following: Aspects of Japanese Culture 1 or 2, Introduction to the Study of Language Learning 1 or 2, or Issues in post war Japanese society 1. Two subject degree students choose at least one unit from their other subject. There also exists the possibility, again after a placement test, for entry directly into Year 2 (A grade in Japanese A level is the benchmark for entry to Year 2). Please note that Year 2 entry is only possible on joint degrees with: Chinese Studies, Korean, Music, Social Anthropology, and Study of Religions. Year 2 Students take two units of Japanese language, and the remaining units from their other subject. Year 3 This is a compulsory year spent in Japan for both single and two subject degree students, and there is no tuition offered by the department. Students are expected to take the equivalent of 4 units in this year at a Japanese university. A three year BA Japanese Studies which does not include a period of study abroad will be on offer from 2009/10. Please check the website for updates. Year 4 Two subject degree students have no compulsory units in Year 4 (they may take any 4th year unit from the list shown in the table below) but are encouraged to undertake an Extended Essay (EE: 5,000 words essay on an approved topic) or an Independent Study Project (ISP: 10,000 word essay on an approved topic).
